Park at Penn's Landing
We’re so excited to show you some of the highlights of the latest park design work, inspired by and in response to, the feedback so many of you gave over the last couple of years.
A New Public Space
The new Park at Penn’s Landing will connect the city to the heart of the waterfront.
The new Park at Penn’s Landing will be a 11.5-acre civic space stretching between Chestnut Street, Walnut Street, Front Street, and the Delaware River. The park will include a wide variety of activities and features, including flexible open space for performances and festivals; food and drink options; a new play area; a relocated RiverRink for ice skating in the Winter; and a water play area to cool off in the Summer. DRWC is currently conducting a city-wide effort to engage Philadelphians from all backgrounds and neighborhoods as we aim to make the New Park at Penn’s Landing a public space where people of all backgrounds feel genuinely welcome and safe.
